Platform Extensions and New Platforms 

FP McCann provides several construction solutions for new build platforms and platform extensions. These range from the very traditional approach, through to the latest innovations in modular design. 

Every station can provide a different set of challenges and FP McCann has the right solution to answer these challenges. 

Precast Reinforced Concrete Retaining Wall

The traditional platform construction can be replaced with an FP McCann precast platform retaining wall. This can be combined with FP McCann’s oversail blocks to provide an off-site solution to the traditional construction method. 

Prestressed Hollowcore Planks and Reinforcement Concrete Beams

The use of hollowcore widespan flooring planks reduces labour and time-on-site while providing a cost-effective working platform. 

Prestressed Hollowcore Planks and Reinforcement Concrete Crosswall

Removing the need for masonry work, a precast crosswall can be combined with hollowcore planks to provide a more efficient construction system that can be installed with greater speed. 

To denote off Street/Rail application to the visually impaired, FP McCann manufactures flat domed offset tactile paving units in accordance with BS EN 1339.
